observer entity to observer state. mahmoud abbas revealed the plan when he addressed the general assembly. abbas said palestinians have begun consultations with member staets to have general assembly adopt a resolution. palestinian authority applied for full membership as an independent state. they stalled negotiations in the security council. the palestinians are askingasse plan. resolutions are adopted by a majority vote in the assembly while permanent security council members have veto power. vatican city is the only u.n. observer state. if the palestinians receive observer status, state status, rather. that they might be able to join u.n. agencies including international criminal court. nhk's correspondent in new york says the palestinians hope such support from the international community will put pressure on israel to resume peace negotiations. >>> united nations official says the refugee crisis in syria may be even worse than expected. >>> the continuity of the open border policy and generosity given by host communities, that offer stretched limited resources to continue receiving
. first, let's talk about mahmoud abbas. last year he failed at that same podium to make the case that the palestinian status should be raised as a state, that they should have statehood. now he's going to go back and say we want a beefed-up status for palestinians shy of statehood. what would that accomplish? why is he doing that? >> well, for them, it's another symbolic improvement of their situation diplomatically. it is a step-down from the rousing reception he received last year when he announced that the palestinians want their own state and they made a push for it. the united states blocked them in the security council. the only organization here at the u.n. that can approve that. the u.s. has veto power. now they're back to palestinians. something called non-u.n. member status. it allows them to be on the same level as the vatican, allows them to vote in different u.n. organizations, potentially get closer in the international criminal court for bringing cases to israel. it's a step-down from last year. there really hasn't been that pomp around the u.n., the drama leading

president mahmoud abbas both scheduled to speak a few hours from now. we await the headline which one already this morning. i'm bill hemmer. martha: i'm martha maccallum. mahmoud abbas is expected to recognize the state of palestine will netanyahu will push action on iran. it was a 24 hours ago president mahmoud ahmadinejad stood in the same spot. he lashed out against israel and the united states. >> translator: the current abysmal situation of the world and history due mainly to the wrong management of the world and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil. bill: david lee miller now is live at the u.n. and what can we expect to hear from the israeli prime minister after he left israel late yesterday? david lee, good morning there. >> reporter: good morning, bill. it is expect the by many that israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will essentially put forth the argument where the red line should be for military action against iran if in the eyes of israel and its allies that country continues to try to enrich enough uranium sufficient to ma

of deal. mahmoud abbas from the palestinian authority today was pretty similar to what ahmadinejad said. he said it's a campaign of ethnic cleansing, the palestinian people, by demolition of homes, prevention of construction, denial of services, and so on. the real sense i was getting, netanyahu barely mentioned any kind of peace deal today in his speech with the palestinians, you get a sense that the peace deal has never been further away. am i wrong to feel so pessimistic? >> well, it's understandable, people are pessimistic at the moment. the truth is, though, if we recharge this political process and got it back under way again, then the two-state solution which is the only solution, by the way, to the conflict, could be back on the agenda. but to do that, you need to have a framework of negotiation that's credible, because people have got to believe this thing will actually happen, and secondly, you've got to match the politics, if you like, the top-down political negotiation with changes on the ground that support the deal and don't go the other way against it. so this is why the

. today netanyahu and mahmoud abbas will be taking the stage. and all of this is coming in just the next hour. mr. abbas will be up first. he's expected to ask the united nations to give his people the palestinian authority nonmember observer status. that's an expanded kind of status than he has right now. this after last year's failed bid to win u.n. recognition of a palestinian state. now, shortly after he speaks, israel's prime minister will take the podium p. and mr. netanyahu is expected to focus on iran rather than on palestinians. he's likely going to warn the united nations about the threat that israel faces from iran's controversial nuclear program, but his warnings take on a new sense of urgency after making it clear that israel would preemptively attack iran if diplomacy fails. netanyahu's threats have put i suppose you could call a significant strain on relations with the united states and president obama in particular who the prime minister of israel says is pushing to establish a clear red line. it is quite possible you'll hear about the red line again. and i do have breaki

to see you again. what can we expect from mahmoud abbas and the israeli prime minister today? >> let's start with president abbas. last year everybody remembers this dramatic show on the floor of the u.n. general assembly when he said it was time for a palestinian state to be recognized by the u.n. afterwards, there was so much consternation, international community, the united states started withholding some aid for u.n. organizations, considering this. and so i think this year, he's going to be a little bit more subdued. he's going to talk about that it is time for this. but i think he's going to hold off calling for a vote. >> it has something to do with the u.s. elections, doesn't it? he's mindful of that? >> i think he's waiting until after the election, until he really makes the case. so i think -- and there are some efforts to try to get him to talk with prime minister netanyahu this week at the u.n., but prime minister netanyahu has one agenda in mind. and this is iran. and i think that he's really going to kind of give a final warning to the international community. he's goi

this. imagine on june 14, somehow miraculously mahmoud abbas is reelected president of iran announces his first act is going to be a rapprochement with the international community to see the sanctions lifted by addressing the international community fears about nuclear weapons. and the alternative, much on june 14, costs until the money is elected president and announces he will do everything in iran's power to see iran protected. how do those two changes affect israel's calculus click >> the positive in this scenario is time. that's first. option one, okay. i think even myself if i was going to do it. the only pastor that maybe i can get is a man. option two will speed up the need to take the aggressive measures. of course it should be carefully checked, carefully assessed, et cetera, et cetera. before election and most of the cases i won't use afterwards. the american embassy in jerusalem. >> i thought you were going to say that. >> so those are words we have to believe the words that with all respect, when they are used, whether they're used for politics. >> okay folks, if you can
those agencies, forcing the u.s. to cut off its nose to spite its face. if mahmoud abbas wants this, he can get it, because he only needs 50% of the un general assembly. the indications are he will try to hold off any moves in this direction until after the presidential elections. otherwise it would put tremendous pressure on president obama. host: so there will not be a vote. guest: not until after the presidential elections, presumably. host: some things folks might not know will happen on the agenda. guest: >> the question of syria and what can be done. there's very little prospect for. any for. given the chinese and russian positions and three in double vetoes on this issue there's not going to be any movement on syria. in the development field and aviation, there's an effort to try to come up with the replacement or successor to the millennium development goals, which has helped fight global poverty and helped china and india bring hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in recent years. those are set to expire in 2015. the question is what comes next. a lot of people buildin
at the leadership of the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas, the prime minister, they have clearly stated they would like to establish peace of a two-state solution. that's different than amhamas a gaza. >> you know, they both complain. both sides complain. the palestinians complain and the israelis complain. they're mirror images in many ways because they are complaining the other side isn't really willing to do what it takes. at the end of the day, what we've seen up to now, that is the reality. they haven't been willing to do what it takes. >> should president obama have been doing more in trying to push for this? >> i think he tried but i think what he was unable to do was to deal with the problems in congress. the slap down that he got from his own congress when they invited benjamin netanyahu and gave him 29 standing ovations in order, as he rebuked their own president. was humility and across the middle east, it actually was devastating to people. they said, is this how your congress treatsent? one is the occupier and the other is the occupied -- >> i don't thinkthat'sit accute. co

killed. >> now, let's talk about palestinian leader mahmoud abbas. yesterday asking for an upgrade to palestine's status. what exactly is meant by that? >> well, abbas said that the palestinians are still ready to talk as we know. the negotiations have disappeared from the table at the moment. and they remain frustrated and angry and they are hoping to use the u.n.'s system to try to put pressure on israel and the united states. they are saying that we want to be as close to a u.n. member independent state as possible. and that means an upgrade to an observer nonmember status. potentially more inclusion in u.n. organizations including criminal court systems, areas where they could potentially sue against israel, so to speak, on issues such as occupy territories and what they call terrorist acts against the palestinians. >> all right, richard roth at the u.n., thanks so much. >>> we have a lot more to cover in the next two hours including a michigan driveway, a theory, a legendary mystery about a notorious crime figure. do we know yet what happened to jimmy hoffa? >>> and here we go

[ applause ] we are confident that the vast majority of the countries of the world support our endeavor aimed at salvaging the chances for a just peace. >> so most countries have supported palestinian membership. any chance that the u.s. will? >> well, in a word, no. the united states thinks that this is a dramatic move, would really alienate the israelis and want the two parties to get back to the table to negotiate and the u.s. has even threatened to withhold aid if the palestinians continue on this track. >> all right, releae elise labo. thanks. >>> 15 minutes past the hour. let's get you up to date and christian teen romans with this morning's top story. >> thank you, zoraida. it started with a standing ovation. fans of baltimore welcoming the real nf
or the palestinian authority, i'll let jane weigh in, mahmoud abbas, the prime minister of the palestinian authority, don't you think they are committed to a two-state solution? >> prime minister netanyahu has been trying to sit down and engage in negotiations and for a while, nothing has materialized and what governor romney simply said is either he isn't committed to a deal or isn't politically strong enough to do it. when you combine the fact that you have hamas and gaza, he's being realistic. a lot of obstacles. >> i think it's a missed opportunity. missed opportunity by the obama administration, too. i think abbas and fiad are the best people to represent. there is a hamas problem. however, hamas has been degraded by the turmoil in syria and hamas has, i'm not defending hamas, but maybe there's a chance that some kind of a resolution could be worked out where hamas would drop some of its more vicious requirements and the myth that israel could be recognized and so forth and stop the violence against israel. and i would exploit that. i think it is in israel security interest to make the right de
